What is a Speech-Language Pathologist?
School-based Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are considered to be special education staff and provide services for significantly impacted students through Special Services. SLPs are responsible for evaluating and treating children with challenges in speech and language.
Speech and language skills are essential to academic success and learning. Learning takes place through the process of communication and the ability to communicate with peers and adults in the educational setting is important in order to achieve success. Some children who are experiencing problems with reading, writing, gesturing, listening, or speaking at school, may have a speech-language disorder. Some examples of these disorders include:
Our services are mandated through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (or IDEA) and the Washington Administrative Code (or WAC) for ages 0-21, and we are not a fee-based service.
